Miami, Fl (August 17) – They are called the world’s best golf instructors because of their uncanny ability to analyze a golf swing, pick it apart, and point out the flaws that are preventing you from shooting lower golf scores. They’re called great golf instructors because their remedies actually work. Take them off the lesson tee, and some of the greatest golf instructors turn into very entertaining story tellers.
Jim McLean is one of them.
Golf Digest ranks McLean as the No. 4 Instructor in the world, and his golf schools are considered to be the No. 1 ranked Golf School in America. Part of the reason the Jim McLean Golf School is ranked as the best is because of the personality of the instructors. They can teach with the best of them (several are ranked nationally), but they also know the personalities who make up the game and can tell stories about them to their students. And, when you attend a golf school, outing, or dinner with McLean you are bound to hear a most entertaining story.
Recently, Jim McLean conducted an outing for a Fortune 500 Company and concluded the day with a dinner in which he told a great story about Jack Fleck and the 1955 U.S. Open. Fleck, a relative unknown, ultimately won a total of three tournaments on the PGA TOUR; the first was the 1955 U.S. Open. But what made the victory in the ’55 Open so incredible was the fact that Fleck needed to win in an 18-hole playoff against the most intimidating golfer to ever walk the fairways – Ben Hogan. And, Fleck was up to the task outdueling Hogan 69-72.
McLean offers several “behind-the-scenes” stories about the 1955 U.S. Open, and in the end, Fleck walks in on the guests. A truly entertaining story and it can only be seen on www.thegolfersnation.com starting tonight.
Also starting tonight on www.thegolfersnation.com are new tips from McLean based on his 8-Step Swing series; and McLean’s son, Jon, displays the ability that helped him gain exempt status in his first try on the Canadian Tour with two incredible wedge shots.
